18 November 1998 Diluted-aperture mirror with a constraint on the cut-off frequency
Author Affiliations +
We analyze the optical performance of a number of diluted- aperture configurations using the modulation transfer function. We select a single figure of merit, the practical resolution limit, over the traditional one, the cut-off frequency, as the most useful one for the detection of small sources. We compare the performance of a number of published configurations, using the practical resolution limit. A new design of a POST configuration is proposed on the basis of this analysis.
